Great hike. One steep section about 1/2 mile long. Great view of Bow Lake. Trail well marked. Not many people even on a Saturday.

The view from the end is amazing. The trail is pretty poorly marked and we ended up off trail twice but it was worth it for the view!!

Great for a quick hike. Great view over Bow Lake if you go about a half mile past the summit. First half mile is pretty steep but easy after that. The part past the summit to the overlook has several sharp turns so it's easy to get off trail if you're not paying attention to the blazes.
